FOR THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD
The United Nations Children’s Fund works in 190 countries and territories and is the world’s leading organisation for children.
Started as an emergency organisation for children in the wake of World War II, UNICEF has grown to promote and protect the rights of all children, everywhere.
Our strength lies in our unique ability to influence and support decision-makers through evidence-based advocacy to effect lasting change for children. We have the global as well as local outreach necessary to create powerful synergistic partnerships to realise the most innovative ideas in children’s best interest.
We continuously consolidate our experiences to overcome the challenges faced by children and those who care for them. Everyday, all over the world, we work with families, communities and governments to make it possible for every child to grow and realise their full potential.
Over 60 years of experience have given us valuable lessons and insights into child rights based development across the world, and we know that a safe, happy and stimulating childhood is key to a better and more peaceful world.
